Wi-Fi Boosters help in increasing the range of your existing wireless network.
We often place the router in one part of our house and use all our gadgets within its best range. This range decreases as you move far away from the router or move to the upper or lower floor of your house. Decrease in range leads to bad connection and slow speeds. This is where need Wi-Fi boosters come for help.
Wi-Fi boosting can be done in the following manner,
- Upgrading the antenna on the router. This is done by adding a higher dBi antenna to your existing router to get a better range. Always check the routers compatibility before doing an antenna upgrade.
Best use in open spaces where the signal is not blocked by walls and ceilings.
- Using Wi-Fi Repeaters/Extenders, Bridges, Access Points. This is done using additional network devices which have a specific purpose. They use the wireless signal / network from the main router and extend it to that part of the house where you get a weaker signal also known as Wireless Dead Zone.
Best use for homes, offices, hotels, schools, airports etc.
